    • Twitch Caster Opportunity for Rocket League!   10/04/2015

       Wanted: Rocket League Twitch Caster   vVv Gaming is looking for a streamer who wants to turn our biweekly Rocket League tournaments into a premier event.  Your role as a caster would be to stream the events on our vVv Twitch channel and commentate on plays in the game.  There are 4-6 Rounds in each tournament and you would be casting one game out of each round.  This is a volunteer position.   What we are looking for: - Available Tuesdays and/or Thursdays from 9pm EST to about midnight - 720p 60 FPS video - Ability to work in a team environment - Ability to interact with an audience - Willingness to stream from our official channel.   What we consider a bonus: - Familiarity with video editing and editing software - Previous streaming experience (specifically shoutcasting) - Familiar with Rocket League eSports scene - Know how to setup and use twitchalerts.com or similar system   These tournaments provide a chance for amatuer Rocket League players to connect with and play against others to learn key elements to the game and the importance of teamwork. The point of the stream would be to highlight great plays from teams and to recognize new and upcoming talent.
      For the specifics of the event, refer to our guide on the Community Tournaments here.   If you are interested in the opportunity, please send me a private message via these forums!

    Keep in mind the campaign portion of the game is only parties of 3.

    I may pick up Halo 2 Vista. That's as good as practice as any for MCC. Also there's a good amount of people playing it, from what I've heard.

    Well after watching that I am rather erect.

    See I'd agree but you have to pay attention to the wording. The console must be connected to Live but the information isn't transferring over Live. So there won't be that lag that's associated with playing online. As far as the "aspect", yeah it sucks you can't just take 8 consoles out to some garage and not have to worry about finding an ethernet that'll reach from you router to the consoles.

    LAN support confirmed for MCC.. But not without complications.

    Even though an internet connection is required, it's not out of the question that tournaments could still be run.

    I'd say it's a luxury, not a necessity if the title has enough of a following. Like I said, if Bungie is smart they'll take a look at the competition and see their success with spectator modes built in. Activision is involved with Destiny as well, so hopefully they can help in that regard.

    Competitive features? Like a spectator eSports casting/overlay? Or competitive oriented playlists/rankings? I don't think anything like a spectator mode has been announced or even hinted (could be wrong), but I'd be pleasantly surprised if something like that came along. As far as how the playlists will go as far as rankings and whatnot, there is a clan system on the Bungie.net but I haven't looked much into it or heard whether or not there will be rankings with them. After digging around for a bit there's some hints at some form of performance based matchmaking. During a weekly news update on the Bungie.net website, some Q&A featured this: 
    My one concern or the biggest question is how gear will affect the gameplay. The beta, aside from the Iron Banner mode, restricts and levels out every player's gear. However the Iron Banner removes those restrictions and allows the player's stats to come into play; Armor, Weapon bonuses, etc. were noticeable (in my opinion) when playing against level 5 opponents as a level 8. Not to mention certain attributes each class has, which some people will speculate this class is superior in multiplayer to another. Also the playlists seem to be limited to 3v3, 6v6, and of course FFA. 
    Overall I can see it as a competitive title. They claim to be support the Destiny (franchise?) name for 10 years. I believe they'll listen and look at what people are saying about the multiplayer, and try to adjust it for longevity or popularity. 
    Edit: They just announced this on social media as well: "See the latest on ‪Destiny's competitive multiplayer at the PlayStationPress Conference from Gamescom. Tune in on August 12th at 11am PST!"
    (Didn't put too much into fact checking some of this so take it with a grain of salt. I'm not all knowing, just googled some things and threw in an opinion/guess here and there.)
